Defib timing in resuscitation guidelines questioned


ANONYMOUS 10 APRIL, 2016 8:26 AM I don't 'miss the point' - this piece is in support of attempting CPR using, to use my phrase here, 'the best available of some fairly poor-quality evidence about CPR'. Before it reached NT, the story was covered on BMJ. Yes, I do moan at police officers - most recently at the police officers who are on the MCA Implementation Group being lead by Baroness Finlay. A couple of weeks ago, one of them admitted that police officers cannot be expected to understand the MCA, which clearly will not help if they start to interact with welfare attorneys. I don't have less respect for NT than for BMJ: the two things are different, but quite why you think I somehow 'disrespect' NT puzzles me. As for: 'As you had issues with how your affairs were handled by the police, where all your problems stem from' not quite the situation. My concerns about behaviour for EoL at home, did stem from the behaviour of 999 (paramedics and police) but the issue is the contemporary guidance, and the lack of joined-up and perspective-balanced behaviour, and 'mindsets'. My concerns are about why what happened to me, happened: because it wasn't just 'bad luck' it was deeply connected to training and attitude [although I am perfectly willing to admit, that it angered, and angers, me]. But, very probably pointless, trying to explain anything to you.
